These are amazingly good. Huge hit at an event last week. I made a double batch and was glad I did!!! I used a 2 1/4" cutter and it worked well, could make them a tiny bit bigger, but not much. The beauty of these is that they are just right at a small size, very rich and a great balance of cookie and pastry dough. Read More

They are okay. if i tried it again I would roll the dough thinner. I didn't get 24 but i used 3" cutter since it dosen't say what size and cut up pie filling a little to make it fit better. Read More

1.5.17 Cookies in the oven started to put things away and then I realized I forgot to add the baking power...YIKES! Well I guess that it didn t matter because they were simply delicious anyway. The cookie dough is very easy to work with and since the recipe author doesn t tell you how big they should be I used a 2-1/4 cutter. The cookie dough is tender flavorful and the apple filling will make you think you re eating a piece of apple pie. I don t bake often but I d definitely make these again. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Read More

I made these using the recipe for apples also by dropping the cinnamon used cherry pie filling both were good. The only trouble was the cookie was a little soggy may try baking a little longer next time. Read More

Delicious! I used only two teaspoons vanilla as two tablespoons seemed wrong. A wine glass two inches across made 24 cookies. I cut the apple slices in half to fit the cookie easily cut with a spoon right in the can and then placed on the cookie bottom. Next time I will try making fresh apple filling. Read More
